QUICKFIRE Q&A WITH ROYAL BLOOD
After their monstrously successful debut album took them on a massive world-wide tour that hospitalised them twice and saw their sound man lose a testicle, Brighton’s Royal Blood are back with their sophomore album, ‘How Did We Get So Dark?’. We’re glad to say that they’re opening the Ibiza Rocks shows this year so we hit up drummer Ben Thatcher with some quick fire holiday questions…
WHERE WAS YOUR FIRST HOLIDAY WITH YOUR MATES?
HOW MANY COUNTRY STAMPS ARE IN YOUR PASSPORT NOW?
I’ve just got a new passport, so none!

BEACH OR POOL?
EARLY SUN LOUNGER CATCHER OR STAY IN BEDDER?

ONE NIGHT STAND OR HOLIDAY ROMANCE?
AWW… SUN CREAM OR CAP AND SHADES?
Cap and shades – but sometimes both.
EVER PULLED THE ‘WE’RE IN ROYAL BLOOD’ TO GET AN UPGRADE ON A FLIGHT?
DO YOU TRASH HOTEL ROOMS OR FEEL BAD AND TIDY THEM UP A BIT BEFORE LEAVING?
